The Discover it sign-up bonus is 2X rewards during the first 12 months with any Discover credit card. The cardholder will earn the regular amount of rewards during those 12 months, then a bonus equal to all rewards earned will post within 2 billing periods of the first account anniversary.
While the Discover it sign-up bonus is standard for all Discover cards, there are a number of other bonuses available, depending on the card. For example, the Discover it Cash Back card offers bonus rewards of 5% on the first $1,500 spent in select bonus categories each quarter. Discover it chrome, meanwhile, gets you 2% at gas stations and restaurants on up to $1,000 in combined purchases every quarter. And both Discover it Student Cash Back and Discover it Student chrome offer a $20 bonus each school year your GPA is 3.0 or higher, for up to five years.
Once earned, Discover it rewards never expire. Discover will credit the rewards balance to your final statement if an account is closed or inactive for 18 consecutive months. But if Discover terminates the account because of rewards fraud or abuse, you’ll forfeit any unredeemed rewards.
